That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Get lost in a Jurassic-type world during this guided kayaking tour from Waimangu Valley. Paddle out onto Lake Rotomahana and be entranced by steaming cliffs, colourful landscapes and Mount Tarawera dominating the backdrop. If you arrive early, you can embark on a walk through the volcanic valley.
Meeting at Waimangu Volcanic Valley, you will travel down to the edge of Lake Rotomahana and be run through a safety and instructional briefing, before striking out into the serene waterways. It won't be long until you feel like you're in another world where steaming cliffs and colourful landscapes abound. Ogle at the steam rise slowly from the rocks as you paddle past, and take in the dominating Mt Tarawera in the backdrop. You'll also paddle over the fabled pink and white terraces that were buried in the 1886 eruption of Mt Tarawera. If you arrive early, you'll have the chance to wander through the Waimangu Volcanic Valley down to the water's edge.
